LINCOLN PARK - The three-storey Walgreens at 834 W Armitage that is currently being built is fielding a lot of negative energy. Residents are going after the developer saying that the structure is "vanilla-boxing the neighborhood", and ruining a quaint-looking street. Residents are also getting pissed off about the store not having parking. Somehow, nobody is upset about the store closing at 10PM each night and not being able to sell liquor. [DNA]
